    So surprisingly, one of my phone (HTC 8X) finally got an update last night, it notifies me about 10536 update and I accept it. After couple of hours of updating, 10536 was installed on it....and its terrible.

    Everything was so small, that I cant barely see it. (Notification, some apps, text, display, etc etc.

    Even got an error code:
    wp_ss_20150915_0012-210080-.png

    Hopefully this will fix soon. Any HTC 8x users there experiencing the same issue?

    I don't think the HTC 8X was meant to get the update.
    Gabe Aul has mentioned that people with phones not on the list for Windows Insider, do not update their phones.

    Just roll back to 8.1, HTC 8X is definitely not the best possible choice to test W10M :D

    If you go into accessibility you can bump up the font size. It works for the system stuff.

    What you see is normal and not because of your phone. New design specs call for vast empty space and UI elements so small that they are hard to see and touch.

    If you guys found a solution, post it right away, or worse, we have to wait for the answer or next build.

    OK as of now things got worse. After having couple of auto restart, my phone got a lockdown. Can access anything, the white screen appear and it says my phone is in lockdown after unlocking the phone. Doing a hard reset doesn't even work or appear, its just restarting. Hope not but looks like this will be the end of HTC 8X. windowsphone recovery tool doesn't even have a package software for this devices so looks like there's no other way to fix this...damn!

    Sorry guys but you should never have updated. It's been all over the Windows community.

    Horrible. I have the exact same problem. My phone is practically useless right now. Yes it may seem usable. But no. All of my pictures, music and videos have been erased because of the update. Even if I tried to put back some music, it's unplayable. Someone has to fix this now because it's driving me crazy. Especially when my phone just keeps rebooting after 5 minutes. Please Gabriel Aul, do something. I've wasted a lot of time trying to fix this. Downgrading doesn't work. I'm still looking how to reflash. Please do something!

    Yup..there were warnings all over the place. Anyways, I think you can't do anything about it. Enjoy it as much as you can.

    its horrible my phone also keep rebooting every 5min.
    I couldnt download japanese keyboard that says "The text suggestions update for this keyboard didnt download successfully"
    even I set Country and Regional format in Japan.

    I tried hardware reset but didnt work. it reset some apps but still has windows 10 on my phone.

    then I tried uninstall windows 10 update from HTCboot-loader using Windows Insider Recovery tools but it didnt work!
    it stopped at white back with text message like dos/v command after pressed "Volume UP / DOWN"

    Can you guys get into the bootloader mode?



    This might help getting the phone to start flashing via the recovery tool.

    Microsoft didn't purposely send the update to the 8X. It was leaked (a bug) as they've said already, while warning owners of the 8X NOT to install the updates.

    What I'm saying is that anyway the should have the check in the update process too so even if a phone receives the package it will stop installing.

    Unfortunately those who had earlier ran the Insider app got the update automatically...

    Let's hope they release a firmware update tool to revert to original firmware promptly.
